I would do it... yes
1) Create a script with
- Code: Select all
Backup-SPFarm –ConfigurationOnly -Verbose –Directory “C:\Backups\ConfigOnly” –BackupMethod Full
and add it as Pre Script to the correct SP VM in a Backup Job (InGuest Processing Pre Script)
2) Add all SP Server to the Veeam Job and provide enough Proxy Ressources that mainly all SP Servers are backed up in the same time. Schedule SP Job when no other jobs are running. Enable InGuest Processing for all of them and as well enable SQL Logfile Backup (every 30min?) and LogTruncation.
As by limitation of Sharepoint in case of Image Level Backups I would do traditional Sharepoint Backups (Backup-SPFarm) on top from time to time, just to be on save side.
But these are not "official" Veeam recommendations, just my way of understanding Sharepoint. Maybe Microsoft will hear the market some soon time and implent a command that can bring all SP servers to a consistent state at same time (Enhanced VSS Freamework accross servers).
